Yay, it’s time to make something creative with your time, with me.
When you sign up for this postcard swap you will create ten (10) original handmade postcards, any style you like, and send them out to ten new friends! People that might live anywhere in the world, because this is an international swap. Then later this spring you will receive 10 awesome mailbox surprises in the form of handmade postcards – from 10 other creative friends.
The trip to and from the mail box will be full of anticipation and joy!
Doesn’t it sound a little bit like magic coming your way?
Sign up for the DIY Postcard Swap Spring 2014
It is easy and quick to sign up for this swap. In short, here is how it works:
1. Pay the 7 US$ fee here, using a credit card or your paypal account.
2. Register your address and payment and that’s it!
3. Finish 10 handmade postcards and be ready to send them internationally or domestically on 1 of May 2014!
I’d love it if you took the time to read through rules & information and maybe even look through the FAQ before you sign up, if you’re new to the swap. Or post your questions and comments below. Once you’re signed up you can start making your postcards straight away! It would make me happy to have you join us. This is the fifth year (and the seventh swap round!) I am arranging.
Note the Dates! You can sign up until April 27. You will receive your addresses before April 30th.
Deadline to send out 10 handmade postcards is May 1st 2014 (or no later than that week).
I hope you’ll start making the cards straight away. In a few days I’ll put up a post where you can share your blog post about your creative process! And if they’re finished by April 30 (when I will send you your 10 swapper’s postal addresses) you can visit the post office right away!

This is like fate. The other day I ordered 300 blank postcards as I want to make some for my (soon to be launched) online shop – this is perfect, perfect, perfect!!
P.S. Have also shared on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest… because I’m just THAT excited!
Aw thank you Daire!
SO so glad you wanted to join, thank you. I got your payment just now, yay! Did you also fill in the address form? It’s the next step. Thanks!
Ive just signed up and a friend too just to confirm does it have to be spring theme??
or just 10 postcards in any style theme ?
“Spring” is just to say when this swap is held, as I also host one in the autumn. No theme, just what ever makes your heart sing! More about what’s good, great and awesome at the frequently asked questions page!
Welcome to the swap!
awesome Thank you xo
hanna this sounds delightful!!! i’ve never participated in any kind of swap before but will definitely be signing up! :)))) i’ve made mail art postcards to send to friends/family before, the idea of getting 10 sent back to me does indeed sound like magic!!! thanks for doing this.
Jenny, being in a swap is addicting – so be warned! :-)
Thanks for your enthusiasm!
ps….i will be shouting from the rooftops to tell everyone about this!!! thanks for supplying so many links and info to look at.
I just signed up and I am so excited about this swap. Loved the previous one and will go mad with happiness about this one. ;-) So looking forward to get started.
All the best, Outi
Outi, thank you sweet one!
So glad you wanted to join again – it was great having you join the last time!
I just put a link from my blog to this swap hope you don’t mind
Lisa, are you kidding me? I am so grateful that you’d link to the swap from your site and wanted to join. I hope you enjoy making your postcards! :-)
Well, you know I’ll be there!
Yes, you are awesome to join again Chris. Thanks and happy postcard making!
I am excited to participate for the third time! I’d love to send you a card, iHanna – do you share your address for thank you cards?
Do you need people to send extra cards to people who didn’t get all 10? I can do that if you need help.
Thanks Anne, but it’s more than enough that you’re in the swap and sharing your joy about it here, no need to send me an extra card. And I so hope everyone gets their 10 postcards, but if not, I’ll keep your offer in mind.
